I think there's some potential with The Acclaimed and The Gunn Club to revisit the old Dynamic Dudes and Midnight Express angle where Jim Cornette split his loyalties for a while until the breaking point where he returned to his cash cow team.   There's value in a feud down the road and there are tales of Billy teaching his kids a lesson outside the ring in a comedic way; it can be magnified for the viewing audience.    Anthony Bowens just came back from injury so there's equity on both sides of the equation again, so Billy can tip the scales in either direction.

Anyone who says there’s no opportunities in AEW because of all the ex-WWE guys… here’s 4 complete unknown who not only get TV time but got themselves more over as an undercard act than all but 3 or 4 of the top guys in WWE.

I walked in the room the other night and my son yelled “scissor me daddy!!!” I said “no” and left.

Somehow they got scissoring more over than Vivid Video.

Tetauya Naito has written in Japanese that he’s “genuinely upset” that he was not invited to compete at Forbidden Door and he refuses to watch the event. I’m not sure if that’s building to something or if he’s really venting.

The first AEW video game is set to be released shortly. A couple of minor surprises is that Owen Hart will be a playable character, per their deal with Martha Hart, and Cody Rhodes is also going to remain in the game.  Kenny Omega has been the point person between AEW and Yuke's (who used to do the WWE games) and that's been his prmary responsibility while he's been out injured.

Christian Cage “shooting” hard at Jeff Hardy during this segment with Matt Hardy. This will not age well if the worst happens with Jeff within the next few weeks, which no one would be surprised by.

The Butcher & The Blade vs. Swerve and Keith Lee is going to provide Cornette botch material for the next 6 months. These guys look like they belong on NXT 2.0 tonight. WTF?  3 of the 4 are usually pretty damn good.

To be perfectly honest, I am pretty much stunned with how much the Gunn Club has improved over the past two years.  If this were '80s NWA, they would be fucking shit up every week on somebody's TV show.  Also - Billy Gunn can still go better than a LOT of the younger guys, which surprises me because I felt he was worse than finished a couple years ago.

ThunderStorm (Thunder Rosa & Toni Storm) vs. Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir was the Bill Watts philosophy of encouraging talent who has issues to duke it out.   Nyla made the best of it for her team but Shafir is a liability in there.

They tried to revive the Dark Order in Brodie Lee’s hometown, but it seems dead in the water to me. Colt Cabana was not there, but reports are that after Tony Khan told Cabana he would not be renewed, many AEW stars went to bat for him and Khan changed his mind and re-signed him. However this may only be as a producer and not as a talent. It also comes at precisely the same time that CM Punk went home, and Punk and Cabana reportedly still have an ice cold relationship where they can’t run into each other backstage (I’m sure that’s entirely on Punk’s part). So it will be interesting to see how Punk reacts to this. But Khan needs to take control and be more assertive, regardless of what his decision is. He can’t be swayed by talent advocating for a popular guy backstage.

They broke them up way too soon.

FTR challenged the Briscoes to a rematch for the ROH Tag titles at Death Before Dishonor. It will be interesting to see if they promote this on Impact too. Up until this challenge, DBD was looking like an episode of Rampage. I’m still unclear what the point of a TK-owned ROH is.

WAY too soon indeed. All five were great together and the crowds were real hot for them every week. I can’t believe we’ll never get to hear scissor me Daddy Ass again…

Shafir is not a good wrestler, unfortunately, and she was part of the PC when they were actually trying to train the women properly.  It just didn't work well with her.  So, this is where Khan screwed up...she can't chain wrestle at all, and she wasn't an extremely successful MMA fighter the way Rousey was, but if you can teach the girl to throw a worked punch and make her holds look deadly without actually hurting her opponent, just give her the Judo gimmick that she was actually successful doing in real life.  You can not ever take a talent and force them into a box just because you like how the box looks.  If Shafir is given a gimmick that she should be able to run with but can't, just let her go.  But at least accentuate her positives.  Literally the only thing Vince Russo booked correctly was trying to find a person's strength and then overplaying it to the point where nobody saw the weaknesses on TV.
